Styling and Templating of the standard (“simple”) controls is effectivelly much more simple than for “advanced” controls (such as the DataGridControl ). It is also something that is not that <i>really</i> covered in current designer tools (Blend/Cider).
One of our designer have been assigned the task of building “tutorials” for customization of the DataGridControl’s UI as well as for building themes. So you can expect this issue to be addressed (but we don’t have a time frame at the moment).
In the mean time, I suggest the designer post his questions/concerns on this forum. People from the community might prove helpful in pointing your designer in the appropriate direction.
